    I'm doing some spring cleaning and I was wondering if there are any home organizer apps-- i.e. something like an inventory app where I can catalog my furniture, appliances, books, clothing, etc. Does anything like this exist?

    I'd like to use photos as well. Should I just use iPhoto and a spreadsheet app? It would be nice to have everything in one place.

    Thanks, those both look pretty good.


    on edit: HomeInventory is definitely superior. Has an option to take photos from iSight, can customize practically everything, and has a "Collections" category for high numbers of similar items (i.e. DVDs or whatever). On the other hand, it's $15.

    What You Own seems aimed at people filling out insurance claims. Bare bones, oriented towards dollar value, serial numbers, technical info. Makes sense for what it is.

    Yeah, a pencil and a piece of paper would probably only run you about 15 cents. ;)

    Compartments is $20

    Pantry is free, if perhaps a bit limited (maybe more toward groceries)

    Hmm, interesting! I had never used EverNote before. It's really easy to use. I'm not really sure how to organize the notes, though...have to do some experimenting.

    Compartments is on sale right now on their site for $10. Not sure how long the sale will last.

    Appears to be a lot like HomeInventory.

    So does everyone recommend Home Inventory? I saw it and Compartments are $9.99 on the Mac App Store right now. I have never used Evernote but from what I hear about it is that it isn't exactly meant for this.

    Anyone find anything else? Getting married soon and getting a ton of gifts, want to make sure I know everything we have for insurance purposes.
